TASTE BAROSSA’S FINEST!

Two Barossa icons, Seppeltsfield Wines and The Barossa Valley Cheese Co are partnering to bring you the ultimate selection of wine and cheese matches, curated by Seppeltsfield, Chief Winemaker, Fiona Donald and The Barossa Valley Cheese Co, Co-founder and Chief Cheesemaker, Victoria McClurg.

 

The selection includes two bottles of Seppeltsfield 2019 Eden Valley Riesling, 2019 Barossa Grenache and 2018 Barossa Shiraz, along with six matching cheeses – hand-made with Barossa-sourced cows milk and South Australian goats milk, with accompanying crispbreads.

 

Seppeltsfield, Chief Winemaker, Fiona Donald said ‘We are delighted to be working with a local Barossa artisan. There is so much diversity within the range of cheeses we have selected and our Seppeltsfield Wines to match. This is the perfect foundation for your next dinner party!’.

 

The Barossa Valley Cheese Co, Co-founder and Chief Cheesemaker, Victoria McClurg added ‘Cheese is one of the most wine-friendly foods on the market – my favourite pairing here is the Seppeltsfield 2018 Barossa Shiraz and 4yr old La Dame 150gm – the semi matured alpine goat cheese has been left to slowly mature and develop its complexity, it’s intense in flavour and offers an uncomparable bite that needs a solid, yet approachable Shiraz to take on its power’.

INTRODUCING OSCAR SEPPELTSFIELD – NEW SIX STAR LUXURY HOTEL PROPOSED FOR THE BAROSSA

A new $50 million six-star luxury hotel and day spa at Seppeltsfield is proposed to become an iconic landmark for the Barossa and tourism in Australia from 2022.

Oscar Seppeltsfield will be located in the Barossa region of South Australia, with the new accommodation offering set to attract new markets to the region and drive growth in domestic and international visitor economy, while creating an additional 363 construction jobs and 350 ongoing jobs for the region once operational.

This exciting project is being funded and driven by a dynamic group of South Australian business leaders. Project spokesman Toby Yap says, “The Barossa is famous for its wine, food, and spectacular sights, but what it needs is an iconic luxury hotel to cater to local and international guests that visit the region. We are thrilled to be bringing this landmark project to one of the greatest wine regions in the world.”

“With over 897,000-day trips to the Barossa in 2019, Oscar Seppeltsfield will be a place where people can stay longer, immerse, indulge and relax,” Yap continued.

The luxury 12-storey hotel will have around 70 rooms, including suites and penthouses, with a private balcony for every room.

There will be a sky bar on the top level with 360-degree sweeping views of the Barossa. The ground floor will have a wellness day spa including a private entry to a relaxation space and infinity pool. The hotel will also offer a world-class restaurant, private dining room and boardroom. A tender process will be soon undertaken to choose the luxury hotel operator led by Hotellerie.

Seppeltsfield owner and Executive Chairman Warren Randall said, “Oscar will complete the grand vision of our tourism master plan for Seppeltsfield to become the most desirable epicurean destination for tourists worldwide. We wanted to create a national icon for South Australia – a Sydney Opera House for the Barossa.

“The hotel will be positioned gently in the middle of the Great Terraced Vineyard, surrounded by century old bush vines, an amazingly tranquil location and a short walking distance to the world-class Seppeltsfield tourism village. In 2019, Seppeltsfield was judged as one of the top 50 vineyards in the world. The addition of this luxury hotel will elevate Seppeltsfield to one of the top five vineyards in the world, in turn lifting Australia’s international wine reputation,” Randall concluded.

Also located in the Seppeltsfield precinct is the Seppeltsfield Cellar Door and Centennial Cellar, 1888 Gravity Cellar as well as the award-winning Fino Restaurant, Jam Factory Craft and Design Studios, Vasse Virgin, Artisan Knife Making, Master Cooper and an artisan caterer.

Terry Boxall, Head Architect of Intro Architecture, designed the hotel taking inspiration from the history of Seppeltsfield winery and the wine barrels in the Centennial Cellar. The hotel has been named in honour of the innovative visionary Oscar Benno Seppelt who revolutionised the Australian wine industry.

A gap in the market place was identified from research commissioned by the South Australian Tourism Commission with only 28 accommodation options out of 161 rated at 4-stars or above, leaving high-end visitors with little options if they wish to stay.

Direct tourism expenditure as a result of the hotel is expected to be $19M per year or $86M over the first five years. Tourism visitor numbers are estimated at 147,166 over first five years with the hotel completion date set for early 2022.

South Australian Premier Steven Marshall said, “I am very excited about the potential for tourism in the Barossa and across regional South Australia. This type of investment in the region will be great.”

It is anticipated that the construction of an iconic building will drive visitation in the broader region and act as a catalyst for new development activity.

SEPPELTSFIELD CELEBRATE WITH THE RELEASE OF ONE OF AUSTRALIA’S MOST SIGNIFICANT WINES

On Thursday, February 20, Seppeltsfield celebrated the unveiling of one of Australia’s most significant wines, with the 1920 100-Year-Old Para Vintage Tawny. The release coincides with the Seppelt family having moved into the family homestead, on February 20, 1851.

This is the 42nd consecutive 100-Year-Old Vintage Tawny to be released from the historic 1878 Centennial Cellar – seeing 100 Summers and Winters maturing in oak. This continues the lineage of releases first conceived by Oscar Benno Seppelt in 1878, now commonly known as the ‘jewel in the crown’ at Seppeltsfield.

The custodian of the Seppeltsfield Centennial Cellar and Baron of the Barossa, Fiona Donald said “To celebrate this year’s release, we now have an exclusive collection of our 100-Year-Old Para Vintage Tawny on display in the recently opened Barossa Cellar Wine Vault. This is a showpiece for guests to the region, containing some of the finest bottles ever made. And on Sunday, as part of the Declaration of Vintage ceremony hosted by Barons of Barossa, we not only toasted Stuart Bourne, Winemaker of the Year and Fiona and Daniel Haberman, Viticulturists of the Year, but also placed a bottle of the 1920 100-Year-Old Para Vintage Tawny in the Barossa Cellar Wine Vault”. 

To accompany this year’s release, Seppeltsfield have partnered with Master of Wine, Andrew Caillard and Producer of The Grape Underground, Christophe Priddle on a tasting note podcast, revealing what it is like to taste the 1920 100-Year-Old wine, a private experience Seppeltsfield offers to guests in the Centennial Cellar.

“Seppeltsfield 100-Year-Old Para Vintage Tawny is rated as ‘Exceptional’ in the Langton’s Classification of Australian Wine, reflecting its First Growth status and historic narrative. It belongs to a contiguous collection of vintages that goes back to 1878 and is one of the most important fragments of Australia’s 19th century colonial history” said Mr Caillard.

The 1920 100-Year-Old Para Vintage Tawny has limited availability, in both the 375ml ($2,000) and 100ml ($700) formats. The bottles are hand filled to order, individually numbered and authenticated for collection purposes. They are presented in Jarrah timber gift boxes and the certificate can be personalised accordingly.

Alongside the 1920 100-Year-Old Para Vintage Tawny is also a limited release for each ‘milestone’ release year: 1930, 1940, 1950, 1960, 1970 and 1980, a special wine to celebrate 40th, 50th, 60th, 70th, 80th and 90th anniversaries.

All Centennial Collection bottlings, including the 1920 100-Year-Old Para Vintage Tawny are available from Seppeltsfield Cellar Door or via Seppeltsfield.com.au

SEPPELTSFIELD EDEN VALLEY RIESLING & WHOLE PRAWNS WITH CHILLI AND GARLIC

0
Serves
0 min
Preparation Time

Ingredients

12 large whole green prawns – make sure you buy whole prawns with the heads on

1 or 2 large chilli thinly sliced – vary the amount of chilli to match your taste

2 garlic cloves, peeled and thinly sliced

A handful of parsley leaves roughly chopped

Vasse Virgin Barossa Olive Oil

Salt to taste

Juice of ½ a fresh lemon

Method

Heat a large fry pan or earthenware cooking vessel, typically we would use a Spanish terracotta cazuelas that are safe to use over a flame. Add a good splash of Vasse Virgin olive oil and warm through. Add the whole prawns and cook until they begin to turn deep red and sizzle, about 2-3 minutes.

Turn the prawns and cook on the other side. Add the chilli and garlic jiggling the pan so that it finds its way down to the oil. Fry until the chilli and garlic become fragrant taking care not to burn them. Add the parsley, a good squeeze of lemon juice and a small pinch of salt to taste.

Serve immediately straight from the pan.
